Life Get’s Teejus, Don’t It

The sun comes up and the sun goes down

And the hands on the clock go round and round

 I just wake up and it’s time to lay down,

Life gets teejus, don’t it.

My shoe’s untied, but, shucks, I don’t care, 

Cuz I recon I ain’t a-goin’ nowhere,

I’d brush my teeth and comb my hair

Just too much wasted effort.

The water in the well get lower and lower,

Ain’t had a bath in a month or more

I’ve heard it said and I’m sure it’s true

That too much bathing will weaken you.

Danged ol’ mule, he must be sick.

I jabbed him in the rump with a pin on a stick

He hunched his back, but he wouldn’t kick

Something cock-eyed somewhere.

Hound dog’s howling so forlorn Laziest dawg that ever was born

He’s howlin’ ’cause he’s settin’ on a thorn

Just too tired to move over.

Well, the cow’s gone dry and the hens won’t lay

And my well dried up last Saturday

My troubles keep pilin’ up day by day

And now I’m gettin’ dandruff.

Roof’s a-leakin’ and the chimney leans,

An’ there’s a hole in the seat of my old blue jeans

Now I’ve et the last of the pork an’ beans,

Just can’t depend on nothin’

Mouse is gnawin’ at the pantry door He’s been at it now for a month or more

When he gets through he’ll sure be sore

Cause there ain’t a dang thing in there.

Well, it’s debts and taxes and pains and woes

Aches and miseries and that’s how it goes

And now I’m getting a cold in my nose,

Life gets tasteless, don’t it.
